With Daniella Woolf

$395 [Includes $100 lab fee] Class limit 14. Nov 14-16 (Wed-Fri) 10am-4pm.

This three-day workshop uses simple equipment with big results. Students will work on paper, fabric, and wood panels. The primary tool we will use is a hot stylus pen with six tips designed specifically for encaustic. Participants will explore the following techniques: collage, wax resist, mark-making, transfers, and stencils. Learn how to work up from simple formats: go small and have it all! You will complete a book of all your experiments.

Daniella joins us from Santa Cruz, USA.
